Well, I didn't mean for that to happen!


A quick blog vacation.

Back to our regularly scheduled program...


Mother's Day gift for my Mom. As mentioned elsewhere, I must really love my mom b/c anyone else would totally have gotten a flower delivery while I made off with this scarf!


Z was my little helper by shooting this pic!


Pattern: Lace Ribbon Scarf


Yarn: nuttnbunnyspunme

I think we may be looking at a State Fair entry. What do you think?

Some sweet spring mud for the recent Cowl Craze.

Pattern: Purl's Cashmere Cowl


Yarn: nuttnbunnyspunme
Mud Season
from Spunky Club
March 2008


They have another pattern for a lace cowl that I'm going to try too.

Shepherd's Harvest Festival was on Mother's Day weekend.
Lots of stash building. (I bought the equiv of how many sheep?!?!?)

And "Party Dress/She's So Unusual" took the Blue Ribbon in Novelty Yarn. I'm surprised by how few entries there were in the skein competition. Why is that?

Lastly, I've got a little Scavenger Hunt going on Ravelry. You have to find it to play. There will be prizes... Come on! :-)

I'm cogitating a cowl with some pretty silk/cashmere I bought - I love yours - what size needle and # of stitches did you use for it?

Your yarn is always gorgeous - and the scarf is a great gift!

The scarf came out lovely! I have been languishing on mine...but I did finally put up a picture of the wip on Ravelry.
Congrats on the prize! The Mud Season looks great too, that's what I am working on spinning right now. I bet that cowl feels like heaven around your neck.

So, you have plenty of land, and a nice barn. It's only a matter of time before you start growing your own wool. At least sheep don't spit like Llamas.

Ooh, such pretty color progressions on that scarf, just so lovely!

And congratulations on the blue ribbon!
